Includes Hard Case

Manufacturer's ID: LPC74VOWRGH1

What we say:

This vintage recreation of Gibson's formidable Les Paul Custom goes back to the mid 70s when Rock was large and tones were colossal!

On this Custom Shop guitar, you get exceptional attention to detail: hand scraped multi-ply binding on the top & bottom of the body plus the headstock. It's a vintage Cream colour that beautifully complements the Wine Red nitrocellulose finish.

This also has its own neck carve, reproduced directly from a vintage '74 Les Paul. Because this is a vintage reissue, you get an Ebony fingerboard too!

To recreate that famous Les Paul roar, Gibson have reproduced the signature tone via a pair of Super '74 humbuckers made with Alnico III magnets for vintage-hot output.

All details form the original production methods have been reproduced so you get the three piece Maple top and the volute behind the the nut to ensure a stronger headstock area.

Tis is a magnificent instrument with a lot of vintage feel and magic. No corners have been cut to bring you a simply unbeatable example of a seventies Les Paul Custom. This example is in the elegant Wine Red finish.
